Lawrence up to 30 minutes in a game

Recommended Posts

Lawrence Always seems to do well early in a game but not after 30 minutes in my opinion ( sometimes not even in the first 30 minutes) so should we just be pulling him off at half time in most games 

I know some sttatos will check up on this and please do so

Well, if you think it may help with his second half performance, why not. Perhaps we should get george Thorne to do it. My mrs thinks he's quite "hot" and at least he'll still be contributing to the team.

On a serious note, was really proud of Lawrence at Huddersfield. His second half performance was just as match winning as his first. I wonder if he realises that? 

I don't get why he goes from this mature, grafter that can beat his man to the kid in the playground trying tricks on his own. And it happens within 90 minutes!! It's not just from game to game but within 1 match he can go from selfless to selfish and back again. 

It's frustrating because imagine where he would be if he knew when to keep it simple and when to burst into life.

Yes definitely one of the most naturally gifted players at DCFC, just a problem with application really. Otherwise potentially a future PL player.

BOOOOOO!

With an OP like that, there should never be a serious note.  It just doesn't deserve them, using phrases like that!   Let's go back to the Half-Time Tug-off... I'd Like to see what BurtonRam thinks of this idea!

Not something I’ve ever really noticed before. I always think if Lawrence has a good game, he’s tends to have a really good game and impress over the full 90. Sadly thats not often enough- most of the time he flicks between being poor and average. I mean it’s not all that surprising, there’s very few consistent wingers in this league. But it is very frustrating, because Lawrence clearly has a lot of talent and technical ability. He’s just doesn’t show it because of his extremely poor decision making on the ball, he far too often makes the wrong pass or run into dead ends and attacks end with him. For a player in our team, he’s gives away possession too cheaply far too often, though he’s not alone in that respect.

Not a bad player Lawrence, but he’s no more than average and frustrating normally, and I personally can’t see that changing sadly.

Did irk me when Lawrence lost possession in the first half yesterday and Stoke went up the other end and hit the angle of post and bar, Lawrence was rooted to the spot slack jawed making no attempt to run back to help out

Not a Lawrence witch-hunt just an observation and mainly a huge frustration because we can’t afford to have players contributing nothing for long periods of a game

Really hope Cocu can coach some more consistency out of Lawrence. The lad is a match winner. To me, it’s doing the ugly side that he did really well at Huddersfield. Doing that gets fans on your side and can boost your confidence when you get the chance to go forward. Because when he’s playing well, there’s plenty of ability there.

As we saw from Ince and Johnny Russell (and now from Lawrence and Waghorn), we seem to either get wholehearted commitment but variable quality (JR) or variable commitment and the odd flashes of brilliance (Ince and Lawrence).

I was happier with JR than Ince and I have greater respect for Waghorn than Lawrence over a typical season. At least Russell and Waghorn look like they are bothered.

If you had whole hearted commitment AND quality then they wouldn't be playing for us and definitely not playing in the Championship

You want to do what to him at half time? 

I mean... has anyone tried it before? I wouldn’t rule it out, maybe cocu can implement the double Dutch rudder to get the best out of him.

Whilst I think that you are right, I think that this is also the reason why we need players with better attitude and (at least) comparable ability to Lawrence if we to go up. As I say, you are 100% right - but this is why we are still in the league that we are in.

Tomori, Mount and (usually) Wilson gave up premiership quality and (usually - Wilson) effort and the difference nearly took us up.
